Oklahoma City PRP Treatment For Osteoarthritis & Herniated Discs Announced

Harnessing the power of platelets, which are cells found in blood that are responsible for healing injuries, the newly available procedure involves multiplying the number of platelets to enhance the body’s natural healing process. With just a sample of the patient’s blood, advances in medical technology now make it possible to increase platelet concentration by 4 to 6 times and can be used to treat an assortment of wounds and injuries.

Star athletes like Alex Rodriguez and Tiger Woods have used PRP to treat injuries they sustained during their professional careers. The treatment, having gained greater notoriety, has become more widely available for pain sufferers everywhere. Per the latest announcement, the Oklahoma Pain Center is offering the benefits of PRP treatment to residents across the state.

After being proven effective at treating challenging injuries such as a torn rotator cuff or tennis elbow, PRP therapy has also been shown to decrease the painful symptoms associated with chronic ailments, including Osteoarthritis, back and spine injuries, and nerve damage.

Under the guidance of the medical professionals at the Oklahoma Pain Center, an experienced PRP practitioner will inject the Platelet-Rich Plasma directly into the damaged area of the body. Injections in the knee, ankles, and hips have been shown to improve joint lubrication and reduce pain.

The therapy has shown promise in the field of neuroscience as well, having demonstrated the ability to restore proper functioning of the peripheral nervous system by regenerating nerve tissue. People with non-healing wounds, too, have benefited from PRP, as the enhanced platelets give the body a boost in fighting off infections and quickly healing stubborn wounds.

The latest announcement may also help prevent risky surgeries. The team at the Oklahoma Pain Center advises patients who are considering surgery for bulging/ herniated discs, sacroiliac joints, and facet joints in the back to first consider PRP treatment as an alternative, if they have not already done so.

A spokesperson for the medical team said: “If you suffer from chronic injuries or wounds that resurface and refuse to go away, or if you are troubled by terrible joint pains, then a PRP shot is definitely worth a shot.”
